The motorcycle race season at Anglesey Circuit begins on Sunday when the Wirral 100 Motor Club makes its first of four visits to the track this year. The event has attracted a bumper grid and a huge variety of ‘bikes – making it the place to be on 24 March for motorcycle race fans.
The race format for the meeting will follow the club’s well-tested ‘Racing for Sport’ formula, the intention being to give the riders and spectators as much track action as possible in the time available. Each class will have two races and at the end of the day the Anglesey Senior and Junior Open races provide those wanting a third ride to compete again, but across the usual class divide.
There will be a broad base of machinery racing, from the catch all 100-500cc Allcomers, to the ever popular Formula 600s and the super-quick 1000cc Powerbikes and everything in between and beyond. Add the crazy world of sidecars into the mix and there is something here for everyone.
Some of the star riders competing include former British F2 sidecar champions Alan Founds/Jake Lowther, Paul Barron (winner of the 2005 Anglesey Grand), James Chawke (winner of the 2018 Junior Manx Grand), Jon Wright (2016 Golden Era Supersport champion) – plus a lot more.
Tickets cost just £10 on the gate to watch a full day of motorcycle racing.
